Screen Door Installation & Replacement

The History of the Screen Door

When colonists settled into North America in the 1600s, there was marked anxiety about the mass amounts of mosquitos that were native to the land. To combat this, cheesecloth was soon used to cover open windows and doors, helping to reduce the amount of itchy bites. Though the method worked well enough, cheesecloth is a delicate and easily stained fabric, and it limited visibility from inside the home, making it less than ideal.

Around the time of the civil war, the invention of wire window screens took off and was soon adapted for doorways as well. Ever since, screen doors have been a staple of the American home.

Over time, the traditional wooden framed wire screen doors have adapted and changed to embrace new styles. Material choices include:

  • Aluminum
  • Steel
  • Vinyl
  • Fiberglass
  • PVC

Each of these materials allow for various finishes and colors to match with any home's existing style. Much like how traditional wooden framed screen doors were often designed with unique and charming carvings, most modern screen doors are highly customizable.

Benefits of a Screen Door for your home

Anyone can see the undeniable benefits of a screen door on a warm summer day, as the fresh air breezes through and the natural light illuminates your space. Screen doors help to improve air circulation while blocking out any pesky bugs, confused birds, and debris carried by the wind, like seeds, twigs, and leaves. They also bring a sense of security to pet owners and parents of young children.
